CANBERRA — USAID’s Q3 2019 business forecast has seen a rise in the year-on-year value of the forecast opportunities after a downward trend since the beginning of 2018.

In total, 203 opportunities have been listed this quarter — a year-on-year increase from 185 opportunities in Q3 2018, increasing the upward trend in opportunities identified last quarter. But while last quarter saw the value of opportunities continue to decline year-on-year, this quarter sees the value of opportunities on the rise.
